Lockport man arrested on felony drug charges

A Lockport man was arrested Saturday on Buffalo’s East Side on felony drug charges after an officer heard two shots fired around Genesee Street and Bailey Avenue.

The officer then saw two vehicles heading west on Genesee around 3:30 a.m.

One of them was later seen heading south on Fillmore Avenue. At Broadway and Fillmore, two officers stopped a black 1999 Audi that matched a description of one of the fleeing vehicles. They found several rocks of crack cocaine in the vehicle’s center console.

Police arrested Jasper Lewis, 36, of Waterman Street, Lockport.
